Anguish a poem by Wolfe Butler

 Anguish

 Within my mind I build you up

I put you up quite far

I make a wish and have a dream

And pain of truth I bar

I imagine that you do care

And that my needs you know

And that you want to be the one

To lift me when I’m low

 But all too real I know the truth

You can’t see passed yourself

And with the chance to just have fun

You stick me on a shelf

 It matters not how hard I hope

In time you will not change

You choose not to improve yourself

To grow within your range

 For in all truth you do not care

A fact that does me pain

And maybe once in coming truth

I will see what is plain

 And I’ll accept what can’t be changed

For you won’t let it be

I must love you for who you are

Or turn around and flee
